LAHORE – Amid criticism over Master Tiles and Jalal Sons’ lavish wedding, renowned Islamic preacher Maulana Tariq Jameel, who had also attended the function, has come forward to share details about expenditure incurred on the wedding ceremony. 

Maulana Tariq Jameel disclosed the details in a voice message he issued in response to a reaction of Indian religious scholar Sheikh Khalilur Rehman Sajjad Naumani on the rich function and media reports.
